@UmniKnight Yeah with Nintendo it's always best to lean on the doubtful side with rumours/leaks. Especially around Directs.

@NaviAndMii Actually, my uncle (who works at nintendo), confirmed that Kirby vs Predator is indeed true. Aliens will be in the first DLC, terminator will be in the second. You can also buy Chuckies (Chuck Norris themed in-game currency), which you can use to buy in-game stuff, such as potions and better weapons.

@Therad I think my uncle may know your uncle. But then he knows a lot of uncles, and gets confused.

If we are talking about the fallout 4 rumour, it is a 4chan leak. So most likely fake.

But... Fallout 4 uses the same game engine as Skyrim remastered. If they have added switch support to the engine it should be a straight forward process. Basically just lower res textures and models with less details.

Uncles at Nintendo usually gathers every month in an office party, so they have probably met.

@Therad Yes, that is what I meant, but I know how people can be in regards to knowing such info and potentially "spoiling" things, so I kept it ambiguous.

On the subject of Chuckies my uncle (who also works at Nintendo - it's amazing we're not all be related!) is working on another one of the DLC packs for Kirby vs Predator: the Child's Play pack. Kirby mistakenly absorbs the powers of Chucky and becomes an evil possessed killer.

I just figured MHXX isn't getting localized for the same reason Square hasn't really localized Dragon Quest games for the past decade - they want Nintendo to foot the bill themselves.

Nintendo paid for localization, marketing and distribution for those games in the west since Tri. They'd probably gladly do the same for XX but for whatever reason it's not happening right now.

Same applies for the Dragon Quest games on the DS/3DS. It was Nintendo localizing, marketing, and distributing them.

People are afraid when Triple AAA games, such as Monster Hunter XX, Dragon Quest XI, Dragon Quest Heroes I&II, Dragon Quest X, Secret of Mana Collection, Nobunaga's Ambition, Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII etc. are Japanese-only longer than a couple of months without an announcement for NA/EU localization, because in each and every generation we always missed out on games that we wanted but were only available in Japan. Now, without region-lock there's still the language barrier for most of us in many games, but still the old hopeful wish that each region gets their own PAL/NTSC/JP version of any game is alive.

I know I'd buy all of the games I listed above if they ever come to retail in Europe.
However, the upcoming Western release list is bursting already, so I'm fine if those Japan exclusives spread out in the West fully localized over the next year. I would be disappointed if they don't make their way overseas, because some of those games are already localized and released in the West on PS4!

I don't think we'll see any news about Okami HD or many Square Enid news besides Project Octopath, and that's a big if.
A shame, since I would have loved to get the Secret of Mana remake on Switch.

On the other hand, will Retro finally tell us what the heck are they working on?

Ah yes, it's in the Uncles Campus that has been recently extended for the third time this year.

I'm like 90% sure that we'll be seeing Animal Crossing in a later direct and not this one, but it would be so great if they revealed it. It would pretty much be on par with the E3 presentation for me at that point. If it's true that they're not focusing on mobile news at all though, I don't really think it's happening.

I don't think we'll see much in terms of first party stuff, period. However, if they announce a localized Monster Hunter, it'll be basically just as good as a first party announcement.

Phew! I couldn't seem to find any retailers offering pre-orders on Kirby vs. Predator - but luckily I managed to find this guy on eBay (whose uncle works for Nintendo) who said he'd get me a copy....for a price. HYYPPPEEEE!!!

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 for Nintendo Switch had a poor debut. It may be number 3 but its sales are low, <25,000. Splatoon 2 is at number 2, while Destiny 2 debuts at number 1.

My uncle says there are uncles at Nintendo who have access to the limited edition Kirby vs. Predator statues. You need to find out if this uncle is one of these uncles.

@IceClimbers Not sure, but if it was low, then you can be sure it'll be met, even if people tend to want FighterZ instead of this.
